Sex before marriage in Myanmar
Sex before marriage is a taboo in Myanmar society. Yes, this may sound funny to certain societies where sex is taken very casually, and it is not a big deal to have sex before marriage as long as you are up for it.
In Her Perspective
In true Myanmar culture, sex should be saved for marriage. Sex should be saved for a proper time and place – one’s marriage. Those who have sex before marriage are considered to be comitting a sin. Even though you love somebody, or you are engaged or you are sure of getting married with the same person in the future, having sex with them is considered unethical. Most Myanmars believe that sex is the most percious gift that should be given away on the night of your wedding. No earlier.
However, today’s modern myanmar society has somewhat forgotten or ignored about the old traditions and has become to accept sex before marriage. Sex is now considered to be an important part of love, and it seems ok to ask for sex from your partner even before marriage.
For Buddhism, sex is something that should come from part of a caring and loving partnership and it is not a big deal if it’s premarital. Sex before marriage is allowed provided that the people involved are aware of the responsibilites and consequences of having sex. And for that reason, many Buddhists in Myanmar believe that it is better to wait to have sex until you are married, and are able to take care of the consequences.
